Monson now floats around in City Creek Mall, standing in the air, for his feet do not touch the floor. Those in tune with the spirit have reported and testified that they have seen Monson just as described in the aforementioned apparition, and he can be heard whispering "let's go shopping!" Surely such reports will bring floods of shoppers to the mall, yea more numerous than ever attained by Elvis sightings. And thus we see that even in death, Monson is protecting his beloved church's corporate investments.
I want to be there during the conclave of the Holy Ones of Zion, to watch and cheer with the assembled multitude in Temple Square as the white plume of smoke goes up from the SL Temple to announce to the eagerly waiting world, "We have a Prophet, Seer, and Revelator!"
Yesterday's viewing (on Thursday) was open casket. Today's funeral (Friday) is closed casket. I read that a private closing of the casket took place before today's funeral began. I saw pictures of the open casket at the viewing, with people filing by. President Monson's body was not visible in the photos I saw. I imagine they had him low enough in the casket that you'd have to be close to it to see him.
As a funeral service professional, I would say that positioning a body in a casket for the viewing is an art unto itself. My personal preference for how high the body should be in the casket is that it should be high enough to avoid the impression that the deceased is way down in a box, but not so high as to give the impression that the deceased is not quite "settled in." In my opinion, the deceased should be partially visible in the casket when one is at a distance from it.
